Hello Patrick, how are you? Haven't heard from you in a while
Anyway you are right, and I agree. However, I've personally experience a "strange" issue when a game wouldn't run because of a "parental lock" issue. Huh? I'm the Admin, yet there it was... which is why I added the Parental Control link in step 14 of my guide
Here's the original issue which lead to the note - Windows Parental Control issue???
Do note however that I have my main steam directory on a different drive (games) so it may have been a permission issue between my games drive and my newly reformatted OS drive at the time.
Point is, it "could" happen. On the flip side if everything is on the OS drive, than yeah, you really shouldn't have permission issues unless you aren't the admin.
